It then traces the Classical, medieval, and early modern periods to present day psychology. The text covers scientific, applied, and professional psychology. Although theoretical and empirical arguments inside psychology about the nature of mind and behavior are not neglected, A History of Psychologyshows how psychology's development has been shaped by social, economic, and political forces external to it, and, in turn, how the mature psychology of the late 20thcentury has begun to shape the society in which it arose.
